Everyone in Panic mode around here... Hauling their own mounds of snow away and clearing their roofs. I gave up and hired someone to do it... Worth it for $200..

2 Storms Back to back. This is going to be disasterous.

$200 bucks? How long did it take them?

The contractors by me are advertising $300 per hour. I just did it myself.

You cant try to talk reality into a person who is consistant with their thinking of whats happened in the past...he's been saying things about it being to warm for this to happen since December. December it was waters were too warm. January it was days getting longer and suns angle. February its going to be birds are chirping too loudly... Eventually he'll be right. lol

Pattern has to break... We're now entering our 7th week. They usually lasy 6-11 weeks. This next storm is more complex than the last one believe it or not... Last one it was type of precip based on track... This one it's type of precip based on temps in atmosphere.

I believe temps on surface will be cold but temps above could be warm... I have yet had time to look at details...

Spending 1 hour on them tonight.

NWS's latest opinion is warmer but with a big spread.....snow most of Tuesday, then along the coast sleet/freezing rain Tuesday night turning to rain Wednesday, then Wednesday night turning back to sleet/freezing rain then snow before ending.......noting that inland it could be a whopper (don't know if they mean places like Hartford (sorry....) or if places much further north like the Albany area and southern VT finally get more snow).

I guess we'll really know when we know.....

Based on Weather Channel on NY....

~ Feb, 25th 2010 - Huge snowstorm dropped 21" snow in NYC, It capped the month as the snowiest on record for NY and 4th highest snowstorm toal overall.

~ Then 2 rainstorms dumping 11 inches of rain in March setting the record for wettest March on record..March 13th the second wettest day they seen

~ April 7th NY hit 90, it was the earliest day they got into the 90s and it stayed hot enough to create the warmest summer on record..

~ July Tornado hits NY and 2 more in September..

~ Fall brought Hail storms and flooding and a delay to Monday night football.

~ Then arctic air plunges down in December and on December 26th central park got 20 inches of snow and 2 feet in surrounding areas. 6th snowiest storm on record.

~ Last weeks snowstorm pushed Januarys snow totals to almost 3 feet.

Bridgeport has recieved 42" of snow in January (not counting Dec. 26th)..Old record for January was 26!

Moral of story...flucuations are more severe but expect records to be broken both winter and summer.

It will not Tuesday-Wednesday. Mark my words. If I am wrong I will admit it.

It will snow and freezing rain. Its going to be a complete mess.. It should start 6am Tuesday and last until midday Wedesday... It will start as snow which is a disaster itself because people will drive in it and then get caught because ice will fall and freeze on contact after 6pm..

Times and precip amounts will change as time progresses but dont put money on seeing rain.
Expect near an inch of liquid.. So expect to see half foot of snow and 1/2" of ice.

Then next weekend is all snow.
